What are the benefits of pellet stoves?

The benefits of Pellet Stoves weigh heavy on the pocket, with a ton of pellets costing just £300. A ton will last a full winter season, with your pellet stove operating 24/7 all season. This could be a massive saving for people looking to cut costs on the heating bill.

Heading into a new decade, sustainability is more important than ever before as we become more conscious of our impact on the environment and the negative effect of climate change on the future of our planet. Eco 2022 Stoves pellet burning stoves offer an efficient and environmentally sensitive alternative to wood burning.

Traditional wood burning stoves have a whole array of benefits: they use a fuel source that is renewable and can reduce your heating bills. In addition, all our wood burners at Eco 2022 Stoves are Ecodesign ready and compliant with the Government’s clean air strategy - so why would you consider an alternative? For a start, the most effective pellet stoves can be up to 90% more efficient than the average wood burner. This is because they burn pellets that contain a mixture of sawdust, bark, and other biodegradable materials, and the level of airborne particulates that they produce is relatively low.

Just like a gas boiler, you can switch pellet burners on and off on demand and get an instant source of heat. The burner can be modulated according to your requirements, allowing you to get the most control out of your appliance.

Simply put, pellet stoves burn compressed wood or biomass pellets to create a source of heat. By slowly feeding fuel automatically from the storage container (the hopper) into the burn tray, a constant flame is created and monitored to ensure maximum efficiency. The built-in hopper allows pellet burners to operate autonomously for about 12 hours under full load.

One of the key benefits of pellet stoves is their ease of use. Automatic ignition means that you can be sure your pellet burner will only start burning when it is needed, saving you a lot of money in the long run. They produce very small amounts of ash and chimney creosote, which reduces the number of times that your chimney needs a major clean – although an annual chimney sweep is ideal.

In terms of fuelling your pellet stove, pellets are convenient and comparatively cheap when put up against other fuel sources. This is in addition to there being little fluctuation in the cost of pellets, meaning that you won’t pay more now than you would have done a few years ago.
